Mutts Cutts Does NYC

If you grew up in 90s like I did, you probably spent your allowance on some exceedingly uncomfortable plastic inflatable furniture, wasted countless minutes AIM chatting with SmarterChild, and rocked out to Weezer's Blue Album, like I did. You probably also saw Dumb and Dumber. A few times. » 11/03/14 2:40pm 11/03/14 2:40pm

2014 Porsche 911 GT3 - Classic Car Club Review

The Porsche GT3 has long been regarded as a driver's car. While the results are always staggering, the recipe for GT3 pie is very simple – take a normal 911, ratchet up the cc's and revs, strip out the weight while exaggerating the width and wheelbase, give it cup-car stiff suspension, strap on a huge wing and use… » 10/06/14 12:25pm 10/06/14 12:25pm

How I Found Valentino's Balboni In Wyoming

"Hey, there's two Lamborghini's parked outside the lobby," said my dad as he drank his morning coffee, with 20+ years in the car sales business under his belt. You see, his passion for car culture lies within MSRP and resale values rather than horsepower and torque figures, so when he directs my attention to a car on… » 8/06/14 10:01am 8/06/14 10:01am

Modern Muscle: 1963 Corvette Stingray Review

If Classic Car Club had a genealogy chart, branches and blossoms would be found throughout England but somewhere near the trunk, there would be a solid root system that started in Harpswell, Maine. » 7/21/14 10:40am 7/21/14 10:40am

CCC Long-Term Project Car: Open Source Porsche 912

Going Analog: 1974 BMW M2 Review

I have a dirty secret. Super cars aren't really my thing. I appreciate them and marvel at their outrageous power and digital brains, but I'm more of an analog guy myself. My theory on cars and motorcycles is if my talents can't push them to the absolute limit, then they're really not for me. That's what makes … » 5/19/14 11:23am 5/19/14 11:23am

Autocrossing A Rally Fighter Is As Awesome As It Sounds

At CCC we're all about experiences. Whether it's a top-down-cruising in a classic Mustang kind of experience, or a hooning-the-bejesus out of a 600+hp RWD off-road machine kind of experience. Last week Local Motors brought a brand new Rally Fighter to Lime Rock Park in order for its proud new owners to experience… » 5/09/14 9:02am 5/09/14 9:02am

Driving & Talking: 2001 BMW M5

This E39 M5 has been a part of the CCC fleet for almost a year now; it's thirteen years old and still drives better than the most current generation sedans. The E39 M5 is the chunky peanut-butter that goes so well with some E30 M3 jelly, in my perfect M-car sandwich garage. » 4/27/14 4:23pm 4/27/14 4:23pm

Up Close & Personal With The 2015 Corvette Z06

The new Corvette Stingray is a great car, which I did not expect to like as much as I do. So when GM showed up with this yellow 'n black flared 'n vented beast of a thing, I experience mild to strong excitement. » 4/19/14 10:21am 4/19/14 10:21am

DC To NYC In An E93 M3 (Why You Shouldn't Hate Convertibles)

You might be saying to yourself, "Isn't that the convertible version? I don't like convertibles..." Of course you don't, you like nice rigid coupes, for rigidity. Nobody wants to own a convertible, but they can be damn fun on a nice day, which is exactly why CCC just added one to the fleet. » 4/13/14 8:53am 4/13/14 8:53am
